HANDGUN & CARBINE OPERATOR’S COURSE - $300
1 day, 14-hour course, 0800 to 0000 with 2, 1-hour meal breaks
The purpose of this course is to create qualified handgun and rifle operators for advanced assignments. A shooter with a strong base in the knowledge, skills and abilities required of the modern shooter will be able to readily take on additional learning topics from his host agency (in the case of LEOs) and/or outside training sources. Students must already possess a basic to intermediate level of proficiency with both weapons, as demonstrated by completion of prior training on both weapons. KSAs presented in this course will be timed and tested within the parameters of well established and recognized drills.
This is a tactical shooting course and, as such, will be physically and mentally demanding. The skill progression will begin somewhat slowly with zero confirms, then accelerate rapidly & continuously until the conclusion of the course. Students will shoot on the move and from uncomfortable positions.
Topics included in the POI are zeroing methods & theories, shooting positions, round accountability, the purpose of the square range drill, transitions, malfunction clearing, low light problems and strategies, equipment selection & setup, and other topics. Students will learn to shoot the handgun & carbine to high & exacting marksmanship standards, select & configure high quality peripheral accessories to support the efficient operation of their weapon systems, operate the guns effectively in low light conditions, and deliver effective fire from compromised positions, among other skills.
